Talking Shoes That Develop Personality Based on You [VIDEO/POLL]

YouTube

Here a while back I blogged about a manufacturer who was making air conditioned shoes. Now it seems that Google has teamed with Adidas to make a shoe that talks while you walk.  Basically, the Adidas sneaker will have a microcontroller on the tongue, plus an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a few other technical specs. The result is that it monitors all the things that are happening down below your waist and then turns them into words.  Google says the shoe uses data to adopt “a personality” as well. For example if you start running and the shoe has an athletic personality, it will cheer you on. But if it has a lazy personality, it will get upset with you for being athletic.

Would you buy a pair of these shoes?
